The index of symmetry of a flag manifold

Fabio Podestà[1]

(1) Universita di Firenze, Italy

We study the index of symmetry of a compact generalized flag manifold $M = G/H$ endowed with an invariant Kähler structure. When the group $G$ is simple we show that the leaves of symmetry are irreducible Hermitian symmetric spaces which depend only on the invariant complex structure and we estimate their dimension

Keywords: Homogeneous manifolds, flag manifolds, symmetric spaces
